Requesting footage

1. CCTV footage

There are strict guidelines on the production and release of recorded material from the Control Centre.

For images that are recorded onto videotape, there is a complete audit trail. It starts from the moment the tape was introduced to the system, to the moment the tape is removed for evidence or destroyed.

Applications for data from a Third Party company in a legal capacity can be made under the Data Protection Act. Applications from individuals will not be accepted.

Please be aware that footage is held for 31 days from time of incident/recording. You should therefore submit your request within 26 days of the incident/recording. This is to allow sufficient time for the request to be received and processed before the footage is deleted.

Due to the time and resources needed to view and extract information related to CCTV requests, speculative requests for footage won't be processed.
